Inglund

As the weather is becoming jolly again, a couple of us wandered out to a nice pub in a place that I can't remember the name of.
On the way, master illustrator Stephane Kardos discussed matters of world importance with ex Soviet Prime Minister, Gorbachev.
It was quite a heated debate and was only soothed by lashings of beer and Sunday roast.

Interestingly, it was the first place I'd ever been that actually felt like England, although much of it smelled like I'm used to London smelling...
Just in from Oscar A. Grillo -
"Don't neglect to mention that the red house with a white balcony in the second photo is where Gustav Holst, the author of "The Planets", lived. "

On the way back we went on a nice stroll to a graveyard where we stumbled across the grave of Hogarth....

And Whistler....

And some poor undervalued bugger who was buried inside a barbeque to save space.

The place was Barnes, or Leningrad, can't remember.

Gorbachev's wine stain has brightened over the years, switched sides and looks even more like South Africa than ever before!

Gorby said...

"The Red Lion" was the pub...Or was it "The Red Square"?

Don't neglect to mention that the red house with a white balcony in the second photo is where Gustav Hoslt, the author of "The Planets", lived.

I meant to type "Holst"

Stef said...

Yes, it was the red lion.
That was a lovely walk and afternoon.

Oscar Grillo said...

In this drawing you look a lot like your photo, Steph, but your hair ain't blue.

Stef said...

Yes true, Matt is such an amazing caricature Artist.
He manages to catch anybody's feature so easily.
